I haven't used Wine for a very long time, it has been a large PITA for me in the past.
I appreciate the effort though, and for some people Wine works great.

My favourite games run natively on Linux via Steam:
- Europa Universalis
- Football Manager
- CS:GO
- Wargame franchise
- many more...

Some other games only work correctly on Windows that is installed on a separate HD.
- Assetto Corsa
- Project Cars
- GTA V
- Pro Evo Soccer
Although these games could work with Wine, it's not worth the hassle, even more so if you have to set up a steering wheel and force feedback...

Very old games that don't need 3D acceleration work best in a virtual machine, in my case it's Windows XP in VirtualBox. I only have Jagged Alliance 2 installed though.

However, I have decided to only buy games that either have a fully working native Linux client at release, or games where the devs promise a Linux version after the Windows release (Grim Dawn comes to mind, or Ashes of the Singularity).

May I ask which Version of Photoshop you are running with wine, and does it perform well? I am asking because Photoshop and some other Adobe Products are the only reason why I still have a Windows in a Virtual Box. I would like to get rid of it somehow hehe..but some clients ask for PSD files all the time..  ::)

Aside that I run "Legend of Grimrok II (GOG Version)" on wine, runs flawless.
I also tried "Guild Wars II" but the frame rate is pretty low and I can only play it in Window Mode.

Fortunately all my other fave games have a native Linux Port already like Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, Divinity Original Sin...aside that if its not running native I am not buying it anymore.

Sure, it's Photoshop CS6 Extended [or to be more exactly: 13.0 (13.0 20120315.r.428 2012/03/15:21:00:00) x32]. I haven't had any major problems with it yet, just a few minor graphical glitches here and there (almost not worth mentioning)... I used this version on my older machine running Linux Mint 17.1 without any problems, and now it's even better on my faster newer machine with Manjaro :)

I absolutely love Wine for gaming. It's gotten so easy!

EVE Online
F.E.A.R. (play through again after many years)
Men of War
Stalker (I'll finish this one day)

Some games I own but haven't tried with Wine yet:
Starcraft 2
Skyrim
Witcher 2
Just about every Warhammer

Skyrim should work fine.
Witcher 2 has a Linux version.


Have Fun! ^-^
